How to Renew a Georgia Vessel Registration

Renewal Registrations are for renewal of a Georgia registered boat where the registration number and name of the boat owner have not changed since last registered. Registrations may be renewed any time after October 1 the year before expiration. Registrations allowed to lapse will incur a $10 late fee at renewal.

Boat owners are mailed a renewal registration notice once when they have 60 days or less remaining on their Georgia boat registration.

Customers may renew their Georgia boat registration by one of the following methods: ONLINE using a credit card, by MAILING the printed renewal form or completed application back with payment, or by TELEPHONE (1-800-366-2661) using a credit card for payment.

Boat owners should indicate a change of address or change of email online, on the mailed renewal form, when online, or when talking to the Service Center operator.
